Strut Replacement Advice

Hey guys, I'm new here. Looking for some info/advice regarding the replacement of all 4 stock struts on a 1998 base. I purchased KYB's as OE replacements, but I need some clarification on what additional parts I'll need.

Here's what I have so far:
- 4x KYB ExcelG struts (FR,FL,2xRear)
- 2x KYB SM5058 Mount Kit
- 2x KYB SM5059 Mount Kit
- 2x KYB SM5486 Insulator
- 2x KYB SM5360 Insulator

What I'm really curious about is a part I believe I can just reuse since it's not rubber. It's #9 listed here as a "shock absorber mounting base"; Honda part# 51675-SS0-004

Can I just reuse the ones currently on my car, like I'm going to do with the springs?

I hope I explained this right, I'm somewhat new to this. Please let me know if you need more info.

Or let me know if I'm missing something that you would normally do if you were installing OE replacement struts on a stock 1998 prelude.

Thanks in advance!
